Letters to the Editor for Oct. 29

Text Size: A | A

China’s unfair currency manipulation is killing employment in N.Y. On Oct. 5, the U.S. Senate passed my legislation that would finally crack down on China’s currency manipulation — an unfair trade practice that has driven the elimination of over 160,000 jobs in New York over the past decade. For six years, I pushed this legislation because both Democratic and Republican administrations have failed to stand up and fight back against the Chinese government’s mercantilist practices. ...

Any tax placed on any imports will be just an added cost of doing buisness.And that cost will be passed along to American public.Stop the spending, lift restrictions on manufacturing in this country,and lift the ban on oil drilling and we'll be just fine.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer

Do you remember the conversation we had at the NY State Fair last summer when you were pointing your finger and blowing a gasket because I used your own lies against you? Maybe you should look at the Brettom Woods Standard where the government took us out of the Gold Standard which allowed these jobs to go overseas.

Politics was never meant to to be a lifelong job, you owe too many people and as I said before Senator, YOU are what is wrong with this country.

Wow, Neil - do you get a subscription to Conspiracy Theory Monthly? I'm sure you have evidence of all these lies, probably stored next to your evidence that Elvis is actually alive in Hawaii, and that JFK was really shot by Muslim radicals.

WordWiz I agree with you on everything except the JFK thing since Bobby Kennedy was shot by Siran Siran who was born an Arab born Christian who hated the Jews.

Look up the definition of Conspiracy- it happens every single day and I agree with Niel- he has obviously been paying close attention- unlike most Americans who have a short attention span or could care less what the truth is. The most dangerous citizenry is one who believes their government would not lie to them.

Neil and tonijean613, please tell us all how to tell the difference between truth and lies in government. If the two of you can see conspiracies that many of us can't see, you'd be doing us a huge favor.

My apologies - my tongue got stuck in my cheek and I couldn't help myself.

tonijean, there is a vast difference between believing the government would never lie to us and believing that they ALWAYS lie to us, the latter of which you and Neil seem to favor, despite a complete lack of any actual evidence. This seems pretty hypocritical, since your entire conspiracy theory rests upon the idea that you haven't seen any evidence of what the government say, yet you're okay with rambling conspiracy theories that have no basis in evidence.

And, just to appease you (ok, and to be a smart@ss):

CONSPIRACY (noun)
1. The act of conspiring together.
2. a: an agreement among conspirators.
b: a group of conspirators.

Since term I actually used was "conspiracy theory," not simply "conspiracy," I will define that for you, as well:

CONSPIRACY THEORY (noun)
A theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators

I'm not altogether certain why you wanted the term looked up, since I used it correctly. The only explanation I can think of is that you weren't sure what it meant and needed me to tell you; so, there you go, the terms "conspiracy" AND "conspiracy theory," as defined by Merriam Webster. Hope it helps.
